The forum is on the same database as the game.


Who allowed you to do that? o.O


It's a relic from the days of ye olde when there was a station service that allowed you to read the forums. I don't think it was ever visible to people witout GM roles as it never worked properly.


You cant specify another server/db for that to keep em separate? Shocked

Would it be too ambitious to ask for forum-reading in Ambulation?

I mean obviously I'm doing that already as I ambulate around the house posting on here, but I'm not an important internet spaceship captain IRL yet.

New IGB can do it.

The problem will be to get the text large enough to read over your avatars shoulder.

It was enabled to players in beta. It didn't work for UI, parsing and formatting reasons largely and I don't think CCP had time to fix it. How there were any resources allowed to an IGB is still a matter of personal curiosity.

Nice info Prism X.

I'm still curios what went wrong with the API and the Alliance Tournament combo, so perhaps you can give us some onfo on that. From what I understand it however, the new resource governor in 2008 will allow you to throttle down the API load on the databases, keeping it from interfering with the more important TQ load, correct? That might have prevent things from becoming unhinged.

Concerning the forums: from what I understand, the new COSMOS site is also going to bring new forums, most likely disconnected from the current database for all sorts of reasons. With the new web browser coming in, I don't see much reason for keeping these databases tightly coupled.
